Gentell Calcium Alginate Rope Dressing is a sterile, comfortable, advanced fiber-structured alginate with a highly absorbent capacity. Alginate dressings absorb, collect and contain exudate while providing a moist healing environment. A reaction between the calcium in the dressing and the sodium in the wound exudate creates a gel-like substance that promotes moist wound healing. May be used on deep cavity wounds, such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and surgical wounds with heavy drainage.
• Rope is easily packed, molded and folded to fit size of wound
• Uniformly absorbs, collects and contains up to 20 times its weight in wound exudate
• Fluid wicks vertically into dressing, minimizing the chance for maceration
